Re: Can I continue?

What kind of range are you putting a LAG on if he's limping UTG? What do you think he was expecting to happen following an UTG limp at this table?

Whether you can continue or not really comes down to how often you think he's bluffing here. You're not beating anything that has solid check raise value.

It IS possible he's making a move on you with something like a club draw, but I just don't think there's enough in this pot for you to continue unless he's really bluff happy, the kind who would check raise here with any holding at all because he's just that aggressive. Anyone else, I think you're behind a lot more often than your ahead, and there ain't enough chips in the pot to be worth looking him up. Even if he IS bluffing doesn't mean he won't catch you on the turn or river...there are a lot of cards that could come and be very bad for you.

If he's tricky and I want to mess with him, I'd sometimes check the flop here and raise the turn, representing a slow played monster.

Re: Can I continue?

If he's a lag and he limped, what's his range?
I'd remove the best Ax as well as 99.
That leaves his value range as [AA,66,A6s,A9s,Ac<8c], but some of those may never or may only occasionally be in his limping range.
Bluffing range is going to be a lot wider: any flush draw, OESD, possibly gutshots.
I'd like to see a turn just because his value range is so narrow.

I'd feel comfortable removing 66+ and A8+. He is entirely capable of taking a shot with a double backdoor type draw.

Re: Can I continue?

Yes, of course you can and should continue. Just go big picture and think about what it would mean if you folded pairs hu on the flop to a c/r as your standard

The plan is call flop and reevaluate on turn.

How close to the bottom of your range are you? Gto lines make a lot of sense in these spots ... in that case I think you'll be calling down quite a bit

Easy fold

If you put in typical assumptions like villain only xrs Ax or flush draws, the GTO solution includes folding KK

Re: Can I continue?

I'm towards the bottom of my range. Let's move on to turn because I called.
